  Course Description
This course covers the analysis, mechanics, design methods and applications of prestressed concrete for short to medium span bridges. The loads specific to bridge structures, and the response of prestressed concrete structures to these loads will be studied for single and continuous span bridges. Topics include precast, pre-tensioned, and post-tensioned applications, concepts unique to prestressing: prestressing loss, camber, and crack control, selected connection details of precast members, and an overview of precast bridge substructures. Students will also gain an understanding of the reasoning behind key bridge design provisions. Current research and developments in prestressed concrete bridges, maintenance and inspection issues, and accelerated bridge construction techniques will be discussed, as time permits.
